“Hey Jon, what’s happening? Yeah I’m alright, I know you’re good friends with my sister Gwyneth but can I tell you something? She is really bugging me! Every time she calls, all she does is talk about herself. And most of the time it’s negative.

A while ago I watched an acquaintance of mine almost swallowed whole by a woman. Well – not literally, but metaphorically. It reminded me of that series ‘V’ where the aliens disguised themselves as humans but in reality were reptilian underneath and could open their mouth up so wiiiiiide that they could swallow … well, you get the picture.
Do you find that you seem to attract guys who always have girlfriends or wives? In other words, are you always the mistress?
